Hmmm... This is a great chapter, but I am a greedy person so... Three chapters a day would be wonderful.

In all seriousness though, please continue with the translation. View More

Have the translators caught up with the author, and they can only average about two chapters a day? Perhaps the author merely wishes to avoid stress, or they're barely making their deadlines... Who knows, I can only speculate. I'd just like to see the end of it at some point, it's a fun read. View More

I'll keep that in mind. I'm honestly more familiar with the Japanese reincarnation/transportation to another world style light novels than Chinese web novels, so maybe I'm a bit biased since I'm enjoying it so far. View More

Thormented: I think all of this might be reading too heavily into everything. Not that you're wrong on any account mind, just that most of these scenarios are simply "conveniently no one believes GRY has changed". It's a longstanding set of cliches pretty specific to Chinese cultivation webnovels.

After a reading enough of them, you start to wonder how exactly the MC differs from the opponents by so much? Because even when the MC (not so much in this novel's case because GRY generally keeps a low profile.) shows off their power, it's incredibly rare that anyone believes he/she is actually a genius cultivator.

I've only read between 370-400 chapters so far, but does anyone eventually discover the connection between her and the Devil Sect? I don't think they have so far. Also, the WRS are so arrogant because they have been established for a long time, they've managed to make the people generally hold them in high regard with their self-aggrandizing speeches, and finally they have the backing of one of the Three Great of Authorities.... I believe it's the 'Land of Immortals'? Well, the backing of that group is somewhat questionable, but they definitely have it by the last fight that the WRS can be said to participate in the novel unless the organization is revived by Shiyun later.

Also, Gu Ruoyun's social standing was basically rubbish before the MC reincarnated in her body and took over the Hundred Herb Hall, and everyone had heard the rumors of her incompetence. I believe part of the idea is that it is exceedingly difficult to advance your social standing in a class system (or perhaps I should say caste system?) if you don't have power, and nobody knows exactly how powerful she is except through hearsay. You can chalk it up to the fact that there will always be some incompetent people who will never accept such 'upstarts' no matter what they accomplish, but it is reasonable to consider this to be a flaw in the author's story since the novel doesn't explicitly explain their rationale, but then again, they do say that actions speak louder than words and we are even exposed to some of the villains' thoughts. Of course, I'm probably reading into this too much because there's no way to actually prove any of this without the author getting involved.

As to the fact that the same sort of scenario plays out over and over again... Well, that doesn't really surprise me. The template that you mentioned doubtlessly exists to help monetize the story, and this sort of thing usually appears in television series and other serialized works. I think the only exception to that rule is when each chapter is really its own story, like in the case of 'The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes'... But those may actually count as short stories, so that might be somewhat irrelevant. View More

Thormented: The novel is a very fun read, it just suffers from the same logical inconsistency of treatment as basically any other cultivation novel.

The main gripe I have with the logic of power rules the world is that it's never properly shown in the novel itself. WRS isn't a particularly powerful sect if we look in the grand scheme of things, her Devil Sect apparently has had the capital to be similar in status with them (as per the novel itself stating a while ago I believe), but GRY is never given any respect whatsoever. If cultivations levels are the main source of power, GRY is consistently one of the top powers(or at least can reasonably battle any top level power) anywhere she shows up but yet still gets bullied for being "useless". This is quite consistent even 1000+ chapters into the novel where she's still basically fighting to be heard whereas someone with similar/lower cultivation level just breezes through on their backing (which is also around her level regardless.)

It's not really this author's fault though, it's practically a template for these cultivation novels (regardless of whether the main character is male or female.)

I don't think that the evil deeds are ignored so much as most people are ignorant that the crimes have been committed to begin with. The only way news travels in their world is by word-of-mouth, so unless the populace actively pays attention to the stories they hear about the WRS and the WRS screws up their story somewhere, they won't notice anything is wrong. After all, the WRS' members either present themselves as the 'victim' or the 'righteous group seeking justice against the evildoer' and use it as justification for their actions, or they just silence the witnesses. In the end, the people only know what they hear, and those who know the truth usually don't know it for long...

I think the social structure makes sense. Power is held in high regard in the novel because those with enough power can bend or even break the rules of society to achieve whatever they desire. You could call it 'the right of the strong'. Naturally, this means that the 'powerless' common people are the ones that are more likely to adhere to the rules of their society. The villains are all people that possess enough power to crush the common people, and this leads them to behave arrogantly. However, the protagonist's combination of intelligence, power, and luck allows her to consistently turn the tables on her enemies and results in the dynamic that we are familiar with in the story's plot.

Hopefully all of that made sense, but this is more or less the way I understand the novel so far. It isn't a bad read, really. View More

Thormented: Honestly, it's hard to tell. As WRS shows up more in the novel, they get increasingly more overbearing from what I remember. By the last few times they show up, I wouldn't be surprised if they killed anyone in their way and still asked the populace to thank them for ridding them of a menace. The social structure in this novel adheres a bit too strongly towards strong existences to the point that it's hard to really consider if other families would say anything if they went overboard.

Alternatively, aside from the novel stressing that the FL needs to listen to popular opinion or needs to adhere to social norms, everyone else seems to be doing similar or worse things but are conveniently ignored for heaven knows what reason. It's odd to say the least. Struggles of being a main character I guess ha!

You might also have a point. I was merely speculating that the Weapon Refining Sect (WRS) probably wouldn't care for the bodies of their victims as they were simply a means to an end. Of course, I was also assuming that only victims of Shiyun's particular style of cultivation through what is essentially human sacrifice were being considered, so the WRS would probably not wipe out their entire families in any obvious or immediate way so as to continue their noble pretense, right? View More

Thormented: That's fair, i was wondering why the victim's families didn't care, but given that they're brazen enough to be this shameless, those families probably no longer exist.

Evil Emperor's Wild Consort · C378

The victims' bodies were probably disposed of elsewhere; why would the Weapon Refining Sect bother to bury such 'insignificant tools' at their headquarters? They probably dumped them somewhere and let the local wildlife pick them clean. As long as nobody could trace the crime back to them, they wouldn't care, shameless as they are. View More

Thormented: Well... that was anticlimactic for the weapon refining sect's ending. Are they not going to disclose all of Shiyun's victims? supposedly they take care of them at the sect right....?

Although missing sect master... hmm...

_queenie: Why do you even have to make a bet. Just kill em all.
In literally all Chinese novels, they make bets for even the most stupid things where the MC ends up profittig everything. 😌😌 This unending cycle shall never end.

Well, there has just been a change in emperors, so naturally Gu Ruoyun's grandfather is no longer a general. The regime change was orchestrated at her command, after all. View More

I believe that the author is just filling in the readers on the rewards from the third floor of the Divine Pagoda that they forgot to mention. Now we know where the MC acquired her spirit beast, Baobao, and the formula for the Longevity Pill as well as the fact that she has risen two levels in her cultivation in the past 3 years. She was a Martial Warrior before going into seclusion, but she passed the rank of Martial Knight and then broke through to Martial General, her current cultivation rank. View More

Fire_Rider_sl: I am confused. Before, she was already martial general, why now is martial warrior? And after martial warrior, author add martial knight rank now
